TMNT Guide to Comic-Con 2016




It's that time of year again! Yes, Comic-Con starts TOMORROW!

Life has been a bit of a whirlwind the last few months, which has sadly kept me from providing updates that I should have been posting. (If you would like the "picture is worth a thousand words" short version, you can see picture 1 and picture 2.) And, unfortunately, because of this, I also don't have my regular, detailed "TMNT Guide to Comic-Con" put together to the extent that I would like. I will kind of be flying by the seat of my pants this year, but I will still be there and I will be updating regularly with all the TMNT news and information I can find.

Here are some quick highlights to look forward to:

Panels dedicated to Nickelodeon's TMNT series (Friday) and IDW's TMNT series (Saturday).

You can check out Kevin Eastman's panel and autograph schedule right here.

The Nickelodeon autograph session will be Friday 1-2:30pm. Be sure to visit the booth earlier in the show to find out when ticket distribution will be—you will need a ticket to attend the autograph sessions!

There are quite a few TMNT exclusive items available for sale! NECA has their amazing TMNT video game figures, and you'll also find exclusive items at the Nickelodeon booth, IDW, Kid Robot, HeroClix, The Loyal Subjects, Mattel, and Bluefin.

And Usagi Yojimbo fans will want to be sure to visit Stan Sakai's booth to pick up the new Usagi Yojimbo coloring book!

TMNT Master on Twitter made this cryptic tweet! (Sounds like something for TMNT fans to check out!)


And Andre the Black Nerd made this awesome video previewing the Kubros exclusive sets that will be available from Mattel.


If you watched through the end, you caught that the Mega Bloks booth will be handing out a free TMNT Mega Bloks comic! Be sure you get one!

Did I miss something? Let me know!

And be sure to follow Ninja Pizza on Facebook and/or Twitter, as that is where all of my "as it happens" updates will be happening throughout the weekend! (Honest truth, there might also be some Pokemon GO updates, if I can manage to find some rare catches. I'm looking at you, Dragonite!)

Take a 360° Tour of the Turtles' Lair



Last month, as part of the promotional effort for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows, the Turtles' Lair was listed on Airbnb for fans to book a stay. The apartment in New York City was fully decked with Turtles gear, as well as having the complete sewer vibe. And of course, all of the available listings were immediately booked.

Now, for all of the fans who weren't able to stay in the Turtles' Lair, Nickelodeon is providing a 360° virtual reality tour of the space. From a compatible browser/viewer, check out the YouTube video below to explore!


The virtual reality tour lets fans experience the Lair in a special way and fill them in with facts like how the media wall is made up of over 40 vintage boomboxes found online and how over 75 pizza boxes labeled with bizarre topping combinations, like jelly bean and sausage or peanut butter and clams, are scattered throughout.
